Sol Invictus 11:23


"In the waning days of ye olde Roman empire, many citizens believed that the emperor was protected by the god Sol Invictus - the 'Unconquered Sun'. The imperial cult’s stature grew at the same time as social and economic inequality, political corruption, civil wars, plagues, frontier lawlessness, and military ineffectiveness ate away at the empire from within. This EP, consisting of two extended song cycles built from Ohisianæon leftovers, was pieced together during a global pandemic." -- The Reverend Harlow Jesse Carpenter
